Hi all !
 
I am jsut wondering what the difference between Hep B & C is?
Which is more serious?
 
What are the liver levels when you have either of them ?
 
Do you have any good resources I can read up on these 2?
 
Thank you so much

welcome chellie
First of all,both can be serious if left untreated,,they can both lead to cirrhosis,liver cancer,,ect,,,the main difference that I know of is that Chronic hep b can not be cured,only put into something like remission,,,basically knock the viral load down where its not attacking the liver as much,,,and of course,there is not guarentee if that ,,,,,hep c ,,,different genotypes react differently with treatment,,some are hard to control ,while others can be completly killed off,,,im sorry i dont have any links for you but you can try the resources page on HealingWell for a start...does someone you know have either hep? or yourself?

My Ex husband has hep C. We were together for 12 years he found out 4 years ago.  I have been tested 3 times and nothing has shown up. However, I had some rountine blood work done and my liver shows elevations on the SGPT. Normal is 7-35 mine was 81.

I am just concerned maybe overly concerned They retook the Hep B&C test yesterday .

I hope I find out today

 

do you have either B or C?
